A Practioner Guide: Oxfam

This Practioner guide prepared by Oxfam provides detailed step by step process of PCVA for DRR PCVA is kind of an investment with communities. PCVA has its roots in two proven social development methodologies. First, it stems from capacity and vulnerability analysis (CVA) methodology. This has for long time helped development and Humanitarian aid workers to design programmes based on a community’s capacities as well as its vulnerabilities. Second, it is rooted in the belief that enabling communities to genuinely participate in programme design, planning, and management leads to increased ownership, accountability and impact, and is the best way to bring about change. The participatory nature of the process supports men and women to act as agents of their own development who, with the right resources and support, can solve their own problems. It promotes the participation of women in particular as risk analysts and decision-makers.
